  • Hey, bro! Scewo introduces its newest family member to the public for the first time. Scewo Bro, probably the coolest wheelchair in the world.

  • ZKB Pionierpreis Scewo

    Scewo is able to assert itself against outstanding competitors and wins the ZKB Pionierpreis 2018.

  • Scewo Founders

    After completing their studies, Bernhard Winter, Pascal Buholzer and Thomas Gemperle decide to continue the project. Together they found Scewo. The start-up that is about to revolutionize the wheelchair market.

  • The team develops the concept for the second prototype ‘Scewo’. It replaces mechanical and technical components and gives the wheelchair a new look.

  • Prototyp 'Scalevo'

    Nine months after the start of the project, the student team presents its first prototype ‘Scalevo’. The combination of caterpillars and large wheels makes for an unforgettable ride. Afterwards, the video of the first prototype goes viral from one day to the next – see for yourself!

  • Team Scalevo

    Bernhard needs support for his idea. He brings colleagues from ETH Zurich and the ZhdK on board. Ten students start the Scalevo project together. The goal: to build a stair-climbing and self-balancing wheelchair.

  • Bernhard Winter

    Bernhard wants to develop a robot to complete his studies. It should overcome these obstacles self-balancing and climbing stairs. As a result, the idea for the first prototype ‘Scalevo’ was born.
